Levine took to the stage and talked about how at first he was skeptical about incorporating the Move into BioShock Infinite because he is a "core gamer." He then said Sony shipped him a Move unit and wanted to "make him a believer." According to Levine, not much later Irrational Games decided to bring Move control to BioShock Infinite.

In addition to announcing Move support for BioShock Infinite, it was announced that when the game ships for the PlayStation 3, it will come with the original BioShock on the game's Blu-ray disc.

To date, there have been no BioShock games on portable devices, but that's going to change. Levine announced that Irrational Games is also currently working on a game set in the BioShock universe for the Vita.
